New International Version

Galatians 1

1Paul, an apostle—sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— and all the brothers and sisters[a] with me,

To the churches in Galatia:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

No Other Gospel

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.

Paul Called by God

11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.

13 For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. 14 I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. 17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus.

18 Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas[b] and stayed with him fifteen days. 19 I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. 20 I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie.

21 Then I went to Syria and Cilicia. 22 I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 23 They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” 24 And they praised God because of me.

Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Abaggalatiya 1

1Nze Pawulo omutume, ataatumibwa bantu wadde omuntu, wabula eyatumibwa Yesu Kristo ne Katonda Kitaffe, eyamuzuukiza mu bafu, awamu n’abooluganda bonna abali nange tuwandiikira ekkanisa ez’e Ggalatiya, nga tugamba nti ekisa n’emirembe ebiva eri Katonda Kitaffe n’eri Mukama waffe Yesu Kristo bibeerenga nammwe; Kristo oyo eyeewaayo ku lw’ebibi byaffe, alyoke atununule mu mulembe guno omubi ng’okwagala kwa Katonda, era Kitaffe bwe kuli, aweebwe ekitiibwa emirembe n’emirembe. Amiina.

Tewali Njiri Ndala

Naye mbeewuunya kubanga mukyuka mangu okuva ku oyo, eyabayita olw’ekisa kya Kristo, naye ne mukyuka mangu okugoberera Enjiri endala. Kubanga tewali njiri ndala, wabula mwawubisibwa abaagala okunyoola n’okukyusa Enjiri ya Kristo. Omuntu yenna, ne bwe tuba ffe, wadde malayika ava mu ggulu, bw’abuuliranga Enjiri okuggyako gye twababuulira, akolimirwenga. Nga bwe twasooka okwogera, bwe ntyo nziramu okukyogera nti, omuntu yenna bw’ababuulira Enjiri eteri eyo ggye mwakkiriza akolimirwenga.

10 Kale kaakano nkolerera kumatiza bantu oba kusiimibwa Katonda? Oba ngezaako kusanyusa bantu? Singa nnali nkyagezaako okusanyusa abantu, sandibadde muddu wa Kristo. 11 Kubanga abooluganda, mbategeeza nti, Enjiri gye nababuulira teyeesigamizibwa ku muntu, 12 era nange saagiweebwa muntu wadde okusomesebwa omuntu wabula Yesu Kristo ye yagimbikkulira. 13 Mumanyi nga bwe nnali nfaanana nga nkyagoberera eddiini y’Ekiyudaaya, nga bwe nayigganyanga ennyo Ekkanisa ya Katonda okugizikiza, 14 era nga nnali omu ku bannaddiini abaakulaakulana mu ggwanga lyange, ne nsukkuluma ku Bayudaaya bannange be nakula nabo, era nagezaako nnyo nga bwe nasobola okugoberera empisa zonna ez’edda ez’amateeka g’eddiini yange. 15 Naye Katonda bwe yasiima, eyanjawula okuva mu lubuto lwa mmange, n’ampita olw’ekisa kye, 16 n’ambikkulira Omwana we ndyoke ŋŋende eri Abaamawanga mbabuulire Enjiri era sseebuuza ku muntu n’omu, 17 newaakubadde okwambuka e Yerusaalemi okwebuuza ku batume, naye nagenda mu Buwalabu era oluvannyuma ne nkomawo e Damasiko.

18 Awo bwe waayitawo emyaka esatu ne ŋŋenda e Yerusaalemi okulaba Keefa ne mmala naye ennaku kkumi na ttaano. 19 Naye ssaalaba mutume mulala wabula Yakobo muganda wa Mukama waffe. 20 Noolwekyo bye mbawandiikira, si bya bulimba mu maaso ga Katonda.

21 Bwe navaayo ne ndaga mu bitundu eby’e Siriya n’eby’e Kirukiya. 22 Era ekkanisa za Kristo mu Buyudaaya zaali tezinnategeera bwe nfaanana. 23 Naye nga bamanyi nti, “Eyatuyigganyanga, kaakano abuulira okukkiriza kwe yagezaako okuzikiriza.” 24 Era ne bagulumiza Katonda ku lwange.
